Don passed with his family at 7pm today after a battle with cancer.  Please keep his family in your thoughts and/or prayers (as is appropriate to your beliefs).

 

While Don is gone, he gave us images that will last for eternity.

From a member...

 


Our dear friend Don Parker requested that donations be made to the Association of Lunar & Planetary Observers (A.L.P.O.) in lieu of flowers.  After inquiring as to where to make donations the ALPO secretary responded with:
 
“Currently, we have the ALPO Endowment Fund which is dedicated to the eventual formation of a brick and mortar home for the ALPO, to manage its archival observations and data, serve as a research library, and possibly as an educational venue as well.  I invite you to check out information about our plans on the ALPO website at this URL:

In the meantime, if you wish to donate in the future, you can donate online at this URL:

Or you can simply send a check to the address at the end of my email, pay to order of, "ALPO".”
